    Olympian super welterweight Vanes Martitosyan 25-0(16) battered Andrey Tsurkan 26-5(17) for six rounds before Tsurkan's corner pulled the plug. Biggest win yet for the unbeaten Martitosyan.

    Vanes was very impressive against Willie Lee, stopping him in the 3rd! [​IMG]

    Now he's scheduled to fight African Kassim Ouma on Jan 16. It's good to see he's staying active.

    The fight with Ouma will be televised on Fox Sports(FSN). I'm glad FSN is getting back into boxing. I liked their old "Sunday Night Fights" series they had a few years ago. I hope they fill the void since Versus is likely done with boxing.

    There hasn't been much boxing, this is the only interesting fight of this weekend. But from Jan 30 to late April many of our top fighters will be in action.

    Vanes Martirosyan survived a flash knockdown tonight, and won by UD over Kassim Ouma.

    The judges scores were 97-93, 97-93, and 97-92.

    White boxers are continuing to do very well in 2010! [​IMG]

    I watched the fight against "afflete" Ouma last night. Vanes looked sharp most the fight with good tenacity and a solid chin. Another tough, hard@$$ Armenian in combat sports (ala MMA trainer Gokor Chivichyan & fighters like (Dutch-Armenian) Gegard Mousasi, Karo Parisayan & his cousin Manvel "The Anvil" Gamburyan).[​IMG]

    Vanes will defend his NABF title on June 5 against unbeaten afflete "Mean" Joe Greene 22-0(14). The fight will be held in the new Yankees Stadium and will be televised on HBO.

    This is one I'm looking forward to - Vanes first appearance on HBO. If he defeats Joe Greene on national TV, it will be a good "caste" win (like Pavlik defeating Miranda was).

    From Fightnews

    In an intriguing battle of undefeated jr. middleweights, Vanes Martirosyan (28-0, 17 KOs) won a ten round unanimous decision over "Mean"Â￾ Joe Greene (22-1, 14 KOs). Martirosyan scored a knockdown in the final moments to punctuate a 96-93, 96-93, 98-91 win. Vanes retains his NABF and NABO belts.

    I had Vanes winning every round, looks like they gave the closer ones to Greene.

    Nice performance! [​IMG]

    Goes to show how great a trainer Freddie Roach is. If Pavlik or Litzau had some brains, they'd sought his service. Steward would be an excellent choice too. But, I guess they probably couldn't afford either trainer.

    Ring writer Michael Rosenthal bashes Vanes Martirosyan after his big win over the undefeated Greene:

    Yet on the same page, he has nothing but praise for Yuri Foreman.

    By the way, we can e-mail the Ring writers, and they do read them and reply. I have done so in the past. And it may be a coincidence, but after I sent Rosenthal an e-mail a year or so ago taking him to task for bashing the Klitschkos, he hasn't bashed them since (Raskin still does though).

    I read an article a few days ago that said Vanes didn't impress or something like that. I have a feeling this kid will be champ in a year or so. Give him a title shot. He's on fire.

    This was Vanes' first fight in 9 months.  Good to see him back. Top Rank should be getting him some big fights over the next year or so.
